The Be Well Family Care Providers
Swathi Rao, PA-C
Swathi started practicing family medicine in 2002. For most of that time she has been dedicated to practicing functional or roots-up medicine. Over these 18 years in medicine, she has learned a few very fundamental lessons:
- Patient's symptoms are always more important than a diagnosis or label
- Changing how we eat, move, sleep, and detox is critical to optimal wellness
- Taking the time to listen to patients makes better medicine than anything else!
These lessons have inspired the Be Well Family Care Mission:
To partner with patients to optimize their health utilizing a blend of traditional and alternative medicine
To practice individualized, patient-centered medicine
To treat root causes and imbalances to regain homeostasis and prevent disease
To empower patients to EAT WELL, SLEEP WELL, MOVE WELL, POOP WELL and ultimately BE WELL.
Her journey as a medical provider has enabled her to meet and learn from some of the best Functional Medicine Providers in the country and in central Indiana.
Swathi graduated from Indiana University as a pre-med major in 1994 and Butler University’s Physician Assistant program in 2002. In 2015, she received the Institute of Functional Medicine (or IFM) Certification for Functional Medicine, which is the highest level of education available in Functional Medicine. She lives in Carmel with her husband, Jason, and two amazing sons, Aiden and Evan.
Ilana Hurrle, NP
Ilana has worked in family practice for 25 years. Over those years, her practice has evolved from a traditional health care approach to the more holistic and integrative one she now uses. Ilana's passion is to care for her patients and help them get better by addressing root causes of their illness and by maximizing their health potential.
Ilana loves incorporating nutrition, evidence-based medicine, and mind-body-spirit into her care. She believes no one knows their body better than the patient. As with most functional medicine providers, Ilana is experienced at treating patients with gut issues, autoimmune disorders, inflammation, thyroid and hormone imbalance, vitamin and mineral deficiencies and more.
Ilana was born in California and spent her childhood in Frankfurt, Germany and Austin, Texas. She attended the University of California at Davis for her undergraduate degree and completed her family nurse practitioner training at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee. She spent a month on the Navajo Indian Reservation in Shiprock, New Mexico volunteering at a local hospital. In her spare time she loves gardening, yoga and playing in nature with her family. She has 2 spirited children: Kyan and Mia who attend the Center for Inquiry in Downtown Indianapolis.

She believes if people have positive goals to work toward and can understand the treatment plan it will make the path towards wellness easier. She also believes patients have the answers to their own health problems. They just need someone to listen, fill in the gap, encourage them and work as a team on a plan of action.

Emily Miller, NP-C
Emily Miller is a nationally certified nurse practitioner. She received her Bachelor of Science degree from Purdue University in 2005 and earned a Masters of Science in nursing from Ball State University in 2015 with a concentration in family primary care. Emily worked as a nurse in the neonatal intensive care unit for ten years, nine of those at Riley Hospital for Children in Indianapolis. She began her career as a nurse practitioner in conventional family medicine on the east side of Indianapolis.
Emily began feeling frustrated practicing conventional medicine, as she was pushed to see sicker patients in a shorter amount of time, and rarely seeing their health improve. She began to ask herself if she was really helping her patients or simply giving a prescription to improve the symptoms. She then pursued a career in functional medicine, working in a private practice in the area and pursuing certification through the Institute for Functional Medicine.
Emily's goal is to provide patients with compassionate, individualized, and relationship-based primary care grounded in functional medicine. She has a particular passion to meet patients where they are in their healthcare journey and empowering patients to create the confidence needed to make significant lifestyle changes and become their healthiest self. Emily is passionate about and trained to treat patients with GI issues, weight issues, hormone and thyroid imbalance, vitamin and nutritional deficiencies, autoimmune disorders, and more.
Emily lives in Fishers with her husband, Colin and two boys, Grady and Graeme. She enjoys cooking, traveling, fitness, being involved in her church, and spending time with her family.
Anne Chegar, NP
Anne served as a Registered Nurse for more than 30 years in a variety of settings. She was finally able to fulfill her dream of becoming a Nurse Practitioner when her youngest child went to college in 2005. Soon after she began seeing patients in 2008, it became evident to her that Functional Medicine, which addresses the root cause of illness rather than giving a pill for a problem, made the most sense. For the last 11 years, Anne has worked in an Integrative Practice. She found that continuing education courses offered by the Institute of Functional Medicine only added to her passion. She also determined early on in her practice that the fruits of good health grow by treating the whole person, thus making all of the difference in patient outcomes. Anne believes strongly that medicine is a team sport practiced in sync with provider and patient. The successful outcomes flow from that teamwork and speak for themselves. Having the opportunity to integrate that experience with the Be Well Family Care Mission has followed quite naturally:
- To partner with patients to optimize their health utilizing a blend of traditional and alternative medicine.
- To practice individualized, patient-centered medicine
- To treat root causes and imbalances to regain homeostasis and prevent disease
- To empower to EAT WELL, SLEEP WELL, MOVE WELL, POOP WELL and ultimately BE WELL
As the daughter of a physician, there was never a doubt in Anne’s mind that she would follow her father into medicine. She earned her B.S. from Indiana University in Nursing in 1978. Committed to learning and growing, she reentered Indiana University in 2005 and became an FNP-BC in 2008. Her areas of interest are Biohacking for Longevity, Thyroid & Adrenal Health, Autoimmune Disorders, Cardiovascular Disease, Metabolic Health, Stress Hormones, Hormonal Health & Fertility, Digestive Health and Genetic & Epigenetic Medicine.
Anne loves the out-of-doors hiking in our beautiful National Parks, daily exercise and cooking. She and her husband, Dick, have a beautiful blended family of five children and ten grandchildren.
Dr. Kyle Roth, MD, Supervising Physician
Dr. Kyle Roth received Bachelors degrees from Purdue University in Agricultural & Biological Engineering and Biochemistry before attending Indiana University School of Medicine. He completed his residency training at Indiana University and is board certified by the American Board of Emergency Medicine. Kyle currently works for Witham Health Services and Major Health Partners and serves as the EMS Medical Director for Shelbyville Fire Department and Shelby County.
Kyle thoroughly enjoys working in the emergency department when it is used for what it was originally intended - acute illness and trauma. Unfortunately, in today's heath environment, the emergency department is often used instead for symptom management. He believes that educating patients to address the root cause of illness through lifestyle modifications, nutritional therapies through food and supplements, and stress reduction not only contributes to the absence of disease but to abounding health. Kyle is actively training in functional medicine.
Kyle and his wife live in Zionsville with their three young sons. When he is not working, Kyle enjoys gardening, raising livestock, and teaching and sharing these values with his family and friends. Having grown up on a working farm, Kyle has a deep-seated passion for teaching people how to grow and prepare their own food. He hopes to one day run a CSA providing locally grown produce and grass-fed meats to the community.
